FT-65R/FT-65E Advance Manual 10


Using the Squelch Feature
EPCS (Enhanced Paging & Code Squelch)
The FT-65R/E includes an Enhanced CTCSS tone encoder/decoder and a dedicated
microprocessor providing paging and selective calling features. The squelch permits
directing calls to specific stations (Paging), and receiving only the calls directed to stations
programmed with a similar code (Code Squelch).

The paging and code squelch systems use two pairs of (alternately switched) CTCSS
tones which are stored in the pager memories. Basically, the receiver remains silent until
it receives the CTCSS tone pair that matches those stored in the Receiver Pager Memory.
The squelch then opens so the caller is heard, and the paging ringer (if activated)
immediately sounds. When the PTT switch is pressed to transmit, the CTCSS tone pair
which is stored in the Transmitting Pager Memory will be transmitted automatically.

On the paged transceiver, the squelch will close automatically after the incoming page
ends. Meanwhile, on the paging transceiver, the Enhanced Paging and Code Squelch
system will be disabled after the PTT switch is released, after the paging transmission.
The Enhanced Paging and Code Squelch system may be re-activated again using Set
Mode Item “21 PAGER”, if desired.

1. Set the transceiver to the VFO mode by pressing the [ V/M] key, if necessary.
2. Set 144.300 MHz into Memory Channel L01 (the “L” designates the Lower sub-band
limit).
3. Likewise, set 148.000 MHz into Memory Channel U01 (the “U” designates the Upper
sub-band limit).
4. Press and hold the [#BAND] key.
5. Press the [▲] or [▼] key to select the “PMS-1”

PMS-(number) will change depending on the currently-selected PMS


frequency pair.

6. Press the PTT switch to return to normal operation.


For more details on programmed mode (VFO) scan, refer to the FT-
65R/E Operating Manual.

Emergency Channel Operation
The FT-65R/E includes an “Emergency” feature which may be useful if you have someone
monitoring on the same frequency as your transceiver’s VHF “Home” channel. See FT-
65R/E Operating Manual for details on setting the Home channel.

The “Emergency” feature is activated by pressing and holding the Emergency key for 3
seconds. When this is done:
(A) The transceiver is placed on the VHF amateur band Home channel;
(B) A loud “Alarm” sounds (the volume is controlled by the PWR/VOL knob);
(C) The LED Flashes with the SOS signal;
(D) Pressing the PTT switch will temporarily disable the Emergency “Alarm” sound and
the LED Flash-Light SOS signal, while transmitting on the VHF Home channel;
(E) Two seconds after the PTT switch is released, the Emergency Alarm and LED Flash
will resume.

To disable the “Emergency” feature, press the Emergency key momentarily or turn the
transceiver off by rotating the PWR/VOL knob fully counter-clockwise into the click-stop
position.

Use this feature if you are out for a walk and want a quick way of alerting a family member
of a dangerous situation. The alarm sound may discourage an attacker and allow you to
escape.
• Be sure to arrange with a friend or family member to be monitoring on
the same emergency frequency, as there will be no identification sent via
the Emergency alarm sound. Do not transmit the alarm tone except in a
true emergency!
• Even when the transceiver is operating in the “F7:UHF-ONLY” mode
(See FT-65R/E Operating Manual for details on the Preferred Operating
mode), the transceiver will transmit on the VHF Home channel when the
PTT switch is pressed.

FT-65R/FT-65E Advance Manual 23


ARTS (Automatic Range Transponder System)
The ARTS feature uses DCS signaling to inform both parties when another ARTS-
equipped station is within communications range. This may be particularly useful during
Search and Rescue situations, where it is important to stay in contact with the other
members of the group.

The stations must set up their DCS codes to the same code number, and then activate
their ARTS feature using the command appropriate for their transceiver. Alert ringers may
be activated, if desired.

Whenever the PTT switch is pressed, or every 15 or 25 seconds after ARTS is activated,
the transceiver will transmit a signal which includes a (subaudible) DCS code for about
one second. If another ARTS enabled transceiver is in range, the beeper will sound and
the display will show “IN.RNG”. When the other transceiver is out of range, “OUT.RNG” is
shown when the ARTS function is in operation.

Whether or not the PTT switch is pressed, the polling


will continue every 15 or 25 seconds until the ARTS
transponder is deactivated. Moreover, the transceiver
may be programmed to transmit a callsign, via
CW, every 10 minutes, to comply with identification
requirements. When ARTS is deactivated, DCS will
also be deactivated (if it was not being used previously
in non-ARTS operation).
If you move out of range for more than one minute (four pollings), the transceiver will
sense that no signal has been received, three beeps will sound, and the display will
revert to “OUT.RNG” If you move back into range, the transceiver will again beep, and the
display will change back to the “IN.RNG” indication.

During ARTS operation, it is not possible to change the operating frequency or other
settings. In order to resume normal operation, ARTS must be terminated. This is a safety
feature designed to prevent accidental loss of contact due to channel change, etc.

Basic ARTS Setup and Operation


1. Set all the transceivers to the same DCS code number, per the instructions on page
10.
2. Press and hold the [2] key.
• “OUT.RNG” will be displayed on the LCD.
